Wellington university student John Watt was tonight named the 2009 MacDiarmid Young Scientist of the Year for finding a cheap and effective way of removing toxic pollutants from vehicle exhausts.
Mr Watt's breakthrough research involves "growing" nanoparticles of a precious metal, palladium, that costs up to $11,000 a kg, to efficiently remove the toxic gases.
In Auckland tonight he was presented with the MacDiarmid medal as well as a $10,000 cash prize, a trip to an international science conference and $5000 for the competition's future technologies category.
